Shootout On The Northwest Side Leaves Man And Stepdaughter Injured

They were both taken to Eskenazi Hospital in serious condition. Police do not know if the suspect was shot as well.

INDIANAPOLIS -- A man and his stepdaughter are in the hospital this morning after a Friday night "shootout."

The shooting happened outside a residence near Crispus Attucks High School.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police said the shooting was likely the escalation of an "all day" argument between two young adults.

At some point during the argument a young man left the scene and returned with a gun around 9:40 p.m.

A homeowner who had heard the commotion all day came out of his house with a shotgun and told everyone involved to leave, and that's when the young man pulled out his gun and shot the homeowner, as well as his stepdaughter.

The stepdaughter was shot in the hand and torso, and was taken to Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital in serious condition. The homeowner was taken in serious condition, as well.

Police ask if you have any information on the suspect to call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
